Arlington Pet of the Week: Noor

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Noor, an Australian shepherd/husky mix with different color eyes and the ability to tap dance “like Fred Astaire.”

Here’s what owner Lydia had to say about her rescue pup:

This is Noor, short for the term “light within” in Farsi, and she totally demonstrates how bright her personality is!

Noor was found happily roaming freely through the woods of West Virginia ridden with ticks and burrs before someone spotted her (likely thinking she was a coyote), and called Animal Control. She was quickly transferred to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington and her unique face was posted on their Facebook Page suggesting she would be up for adoption.

As luck would have it, she randomly appeared on my news feed, and I filled out an application to adopt her! It was like a commercial; I fell in love at first sight!

Noor is just over 1 year old. She is the smartest Australian shepherd/husky mix who will gladly shake your hand upon meeting you. She snuggles like a sausage in the blankets, tap dances like Fred Astaire, and will sing you a tune when she’s feeling frisky.

Noor has a gentle Boxer boyfriend named Apollo and she enjoys convertible car rides in any season. She has shined a light in our lives, and has been a blessing in every way.
